And National Pitbull Awareness Day is coming up on October 27th.
These babies, along with other bully breeds, have a bad rap. Understandably, when you consider that many people mistreat them and breed them for fighting. However, that's not the case for a lot of these beautiful pup. That bad rap is unwarranted. So, here are some cute pictures and a couple fun facts about Pitbulls. You can find more information about National Pitbull Awareness Month/Day here.

Pitbulls are NOT an agressive breed
*In the test a dog is placed in a series of confrontational situations. The first sign of aggression or panic is a failure of the test.
